5 Reasons why Australia should be on your travel bucket list 

We’re taking it back to the days when traveling required 2 passports lots of luggage for only me, bikinis and to do lists.., and we’re revamping it to our future travel bucket list that will include family packing, educational activities and ways to love like the locals. 

Traveling is always a must for us but lately we’ve enjoyed Disney and cruising. We put a hault on the fun work required; like firing the best safari in South Africa, quaint restaurants in Italy or perfect photo opps in Greece, when traveling across country. 



But, in planning to start this travel adventure over again with the kiddos we’ve added the awesome country of Australia to the top of the list and here’s why! 

-Australia is the world’s 6th largest country. Which includes 6 small gorgeous islands and 7,000 beaches 


– The sport footy also known as Aussie Rules / Australian football league grand final is the most special sports; which a young sportsman would greatly appreciate catching a game.

– Australia has some of the most rare animals. Imagine snuggling up to this little furry baby 


– The people and culture of Australia can encompasses up to 10 different racial backgrounds. These are people of all historic and entrepreneurial backgrounds. Including Andrew Charlton
– Then of course the outback! How can you plan a trip to Australia without including a stop to the hot, red, dry place in the heart of  the country.

Summer Lovin’ & All About The Ocean

We are now a full 2nd week in to summer!! The weather has been great and we have discovered that this summer will be all about the ocean. The girls are so interested in Mermaids (with the help of Coney Islands Mermaid Parade and Dora). They are learning to swim, love collecting seashells, sea creatures and request to go to the beach almost everyday. I must say with it only being 2 full weekends into the summer we have visited 3 beaches in New York/New Jersey…don’t you just love New York in the summer! This year Vita (Vittoria) is enjoying her feet in the sand…. Lucky for me; now I am only responsible for carrying bags & Etc Etc Etc đŸ™‚ :). So far in our experience we highly recommend visiting Coney Island, as top beach for eclectic entertainment, landmark exhibits and rides, and of course the ocean. Here are some of our favorite oceanic images!
